Open for business

The Antique market has now been open for business for a few months.  Here are a few things that I have learned along the way.

  1. Rearrange: Rearrange your booth often. Whether you change the way something is hanging or add seasonal decor, it has always improved my sales when I go and spruce up and add a few new items.
  2. Too Crowded: Try not to over stack tables. I have found this out the hard way. If you have a lot of items on a table and it sales, well now you have a bunch of items in the floor and nowhere to put them. Also customers are more likely to purchase a big item like that if it’s not covered with stuff they have to move.
  3.  Experiment: If it’s not selling, its ok to take it out and replace it with something else. Add the item back in later.  Try to get a feel for what items are selling.
  4.  History: Attach any history that you have on an item. When out looking and purchasing, always ask do you know anything about this piece, always fun to learn more about your finds.
